Biological pest control

Small but mighty microbes

Novozymes microbial biocontrol solutions provide robust protection against insects and disease pests. The solutions consist of microbes, notably bacteria and fungi, that target damaging pests and keep crops healthy.

These pesky bugs include vine weevils, which over time can become resistant to chemicals and leave farmers’ valuable crops at risk. Microbes from these fungi act as a biological pest control method for high-value fruit and vegetable crops as well as ornamental plants.
